Am I the only bride-to-be that has recurring nightmares about our wedding? If there is anything that could ever go wrong with a wedding, I’ve dreamt about it. Here is a list of just some of the nightmares I’ve had (at least all the ones I can remember).

  • My hair and makeup is not done when it’s time to walk down the aisle
  • Being totally late because I run out of time getting ready
  • My dad not showing up to walk me down (I’ve had that one twice, in the most recent one my sister walked me instead)
  • Getting to the altar and not knowing who I am marrying. Then when I see the guy he is some unknown nasty man and I get really sad and don’t want to marry him
  • Instead of flowers, the florist puts up giant crepe paper daisies… hideous
  • My bouquet flowers are the wrong color
  • Forgetting to give a schedule to the DJ and caterers so no one knows what is going on
  • Forgetting to sort out who will actually be marrying us (luckily someone at the wedding just happens to be authorized to do so)
  • Turning into a total bridezilla and actually yelling at people because NO ONE is doing anything
  • Having to tell my mom to go sit down because she wants to walk down the aisle after me
  • Waking up the day after the wedding and realizing I remember NONE of it and being SO sad that I will never remember our wedding

Andrew thinks I’m crazy- but he also thinks it probably happens to all brides. Maybe I am crazy. If we’ve got 9 months until the wedding and I’m already having these issues, how much worse will it get when I only have 1 month left to plan?

  1. Poor you….

    I think you will have to get used to these for the next 9 months though. Good wedding speech material if nothing else.

  2. That’s no fun!!! Bad dreams are usually caused by anxiety so hopefully as things sort themselves out you’ll sleep more rested and have better dreams!!!

  3. My wedding nightmare DID come true. My period started with a vengeance during the ceremony. By the time we were done with the pictures immediately after, my undies, slip, and petticoats had all soaked through. Luckily the dress was spared, but needless to say I had to run to buy a few items before we showed up at the luncheon.

    The other nightmare was who my ex turned out to be. But that’s another story entirely.

  4. I had nightmares about my wedding when I was a bride too. I still occasionally have a nightmare about my husband divorcing me or leaving me. I don’t know what that is about. But I know that he is the best thing that has ever happened to me and probably in some way I am afraid of losing the best thing that has ever happened to me and maybe a bit of feeling like I don’t deserve him mixed in there. So, I feel ya on this. Been there!

  5. I guess I was lucky, I planned my wedding in 30 days so I didn’t have time to have nightmares…or stress out. Everything went smoothly except that the 4 people that helped set up the wedding missed the ceremony because they went home to change. But that was their own fault. Even though I only spent 30 days planning the wedding, I was depressed when it was over. I can imagine that would be harder the longer you have to plan and look forward to it. It all went so quickly and I can’t even remember what our vows were.

  6. You are not alone. I remember having a ton of them. (And when you are pregnant… they only get weirder) One of the ones I remember was putting my dress on and it was the WRONG dress and it was ORANGE. My least favorite color in the whole world is Orange. It was devastating.

    When I was pregnant I had dreams that I would go all day without feeding the baby and then she was transparent and I couldn’t see her good. So strange!
